Well was going to go out to Neaha Bay, WA this morning from Auburn, but went to start motorcycle and battery barely cranked. Just wanted to post a heads up and maybe most of you guys already know this. I did not connect my battery tender this past 9 days. I do have a radar detector and ipod charger on the bike that were connected to both via the battery direct.. I think that even with the ignition off that a small amount of power draw is present. Similar to a home wall adapter in a socket even if it is not plugged into an appliance. Hope a couple of hours on the charger will do the trick so I can head out!
